Hi Experts,
I installed the Red Hat Linux 7.3 ( workstaion) along with windows server 2000 on the second hard disk.I already have windows 98, winsow 2000 professional and winows xp on the first hard drive.Actually, I skipped the boot loader option but created boot disk for Red hat Linux. Now, when I start with boot disk, I tried different options but couldn't start Red Hat Linux 7.3.Can anyone guide thru' the steps of starting linux using boot disk ?
Secondly, if I want to have server installation of Red Hat Linux 7.3 on the second hard disk along with windows server 2000, will it delete the existing partition ?
Thanks

what's the error/messages after you bootup with your boot disk? this will be more easier to give you hints.

Secondly, if I want to have server installation of Red Hat Linux 7.3 on the second hard disk along with windows server 2000, will it delete the existing partition ?

provided you have space for install the RH7.3, it will not delete any partitions unless you select manually partition your harddisk and remove by yourself. so make sure you have space before you install.
